wanted to commend it administration for its aggressiveness in getting this person. a tax that may be planned by al qaeda -- attacks that may be planned by al qaeda. all of us should agree that the work that you have done and what the fbi has done since 9/11, really protecting the country against any massive domestic terrorist attacks, and all of your activities internationally, it has really been remarkable. not itscy, it was primary focus on 9/11, but as much of the country, we've had to focus more intently on this issue. i do want to bring you back home. my final question is about the budget and appropriations and the department of justice. we imprison more people than any other nation in the world through our state and federal prison systems. 24% of the doj budget -- you are at about 29%. it will continue to rise. at some point, we need to think differently about what we're doing with people. i have constituents, family, children, we all want to be protected from dangerous people. a society ought to be protected. people involved in wrongdoing should be punished. at some point a
anything of the sort. bowles-simpson >> balsams and called for tax reform. this budget does nothing of that sort. i cannot see how people simpson is among the reasons why he supports it. >> thank you. there is a similarity in there was a cause for a spending reduction in our tax code, the credits and bypassing collection. senator sanders was referring to the cayman islands earlier. i believe senator levin has talked about $70 billion in net revenue, companies that do not pay a cent in taxes. that type of spending through credits and deductions has grown phenomenally. the powerful in our country, the want their projects to be funded through the tax code, because unlike a preparations, it is not examined every year. that is a very clever strategy and puts them in a very different class and working people who are benefited by programs that are funded every year. it is unacceptable if you come to the core concept of fairness. the actual language in the reconciliation instruction refers to the level of revenues. the explanatory instructions in the back, page 61, talks specifically about

taxes. you have probably heard the sequester cuts go after about $44 billion in this fiscal year. let me give you a sense of this. taxes on tobacco and alcohol and gaming, gambling, lotteries, generated together $75 billion compared tough sequester, that taxes are doing a very powerful job. that is, federal, state and and local revenue. two states, two states have legalized the recreational use of marijuana. they are colorado and washington . colorado collects more than $5 million in sales, $5 million in sales from dispensaries, pot dispensaries, marijuana. washington is reportedly collecting some $750,000 in taxes, although they have been having trouble getting dispensaries registered with the state. it is affecting their revenue. pot smokers procrastinating. hard to imagine. well, regarding that $13 billion pornography industry, 13 billion. california is earning about $36 million per year just in revenue from the porn industry. it's worth about a billion dollars overall to the economy, just in southern california. well we are on the subject of sex in addition to the so-called vice taxe
washington times" -- there are no sacred cows that calls for $1 trillion in new taxes. what's your takeaway? guest: well, what it does is also call for substantial cuts, but it deals with deficit reduction in a balanced way. what the republicans want to do is do deficit reduction simply by cutting, cutting, cutting. doing away with medicare as we know it. right now converting that into a voucher system which we very, very onerous for senior citizens, making devastating cuts in medicaid which means that millions of millions of american people and kids will lose their health insurance. massive cuts in education, in nutrition. basically every program that in the middle of a terrible recession working people depend upon would be done away with. what my view is -- i think the senate agrees what the committee is moving toward is to say, wait a second, we are seeing a middle class collapse, poverty at a high rate while the wealthiest and corporations are doing extraordinarily well. we are looking at record breaking profits for corporations and yet their effective tax rate is the lowest since 1972.
with your tax dollars. now more than 300,000 federal contractors are dodging paying their taxes if you can believe this story. a democratic lawmaker is going after those workers and she will join us next. bill: also this picture became a symbol of washington waste after taxpayers paid for a lavish las vegas conference. government workers attending there including this guy in the hot tub. wait until you hear what this federal agency is doing now. this is $100,000. we asked total strangers to watch it for us. thank you so much. i appreciate it. i'll be right back. they didn't take a dime. how much in fees does your bank take to watch your money? if your bank takes more money than a stranger, you need an ally. ally bank. your money needs an ally. >> announcer: meet mary. she loves tohop online with her debit ca and so does bill, an identity thf who stole mary's identity, took over her bank accountand stole her hard-earned money. unfortunately, millions of ericans just like you learn misplaced information to wreak havoc on your life. this is identity theft and no one helps stop it better than
: tax time. hate to remind you about that, but millions of americans are preparing to pay uncle sam. they're looking for a tax break as well, like the government tax credit. as much as $7500 for environmentally friendly electric cars. while ads say these cars produce zero emissions, our next guest says that may not actually be the case. in fact he says green cars have a dirty little secret and tax breaks for them may not be in the best interests for taxpayers. he is the author of, cool it, skeptical environmentalist. he wrote an article in the "wall street journal" just the other day, the dirty secrets about electric car. what is a dirty little secret about what is supposed to be a clean car? >> they don't emit co2 when driving on the road but they take up a lot of co2, fossil fuels when they're being produced. they take up as much as it would take to drive 80,000 miles when it gets produced because battery are incredibly energy costly to produce. then at the same time, of course you actually recharge them with electricity. that is also mostly produced with fossil fuels. jenna: so i
. the sequencing done right on this cut spending cuts and tax reform. things sound great and they're moving along now. but joe, as we talked about earlier, you're going to have reticent democrats. and even key congressional races who are going to slow down a bit and saying, look, i want immigration and guns dealt with, what are we doing about the economy and the budget, the debt, and tax reform? >> and this is, richard haas, you can only push people so far, i mean, not the republicans' best friend. this weekend said democrats you're about to lose me. i pay 40% federal, 15%. well, i hear we have it cued up. let's go. this is bill maher this weekend. >> -- actually do pay the freight in this country. i just saw the statistics, something like 70%. and here in california, i'm just going to say, liberals, you could actually lose me. it's outrageous what we're paying. over -- i'm willing to pay my share, but yeah, it's ridiculous. >> and not only that -- >> wow. >> people like bill maher pay 55% in california, people in new york pay over 50%. in new jersey, why is a republican sitting at 70% plus appro
on the balance. >> property taxes. >> megyn: that is warning people of a potential property tax hike in the coming election. i don't understand exactly what's happening. the teachers don't like that, but why are the teachers objecting to notifications of property taxes going up. >> they don't want the voters to notice if they've signed up, they voted for a property tax hike and the property taxes are the basis. >> megyn: and they're going to go and vote on various measures that affect them and the one on i raising property taxes is now highlighted on red ink on the outside of the voter envelope. >> and saying we've got more taxes coming at you. >> megyn: and the teachers union says let that go? >> no, let the voters blythely go on and meander through the ballot and the last thing they want is for taxpayers to know that he or she is going to be paying higher taxes in an educational system that isn't too shiny, if i can use the expression. it's pitiful what's happening. >> megyn: because those property taxes will go help fund the teachers salaries and they don't want anybody-- they don
the budget over the next ten years. >> but no tax increases. >> no tax increases. the president already got $650 billion worth of tax increases january 1st. he got a trillion dollars worth of tax increases in obama care. this year the federal government will bring in more revenue than any year in our history and yet we're still going to have a trillion dollars budget deficit. spending is the problem. >> the white house says in response, yes, it's true. taxes went up more than $600 billion over ten years at the end of the year but it is also true the white house put $1.5 trillion worth of spending cuts in their budget. the truth is you're both right. i mean, they have offered spending cuts. the taxes did go up. it still hasn't made enough of a dent. you still have to sit down and do something. >> right. i think we're doing our budget this year. actually we're doing it this week here in the house. our budget will balance in ten years. we're going to pass our budget. hopefully the senate will pass their budget. except their budget never comes to balance. the president's budget never comes to b

is where they can compromise on fundamental disagreements, including taxes. >> you know, again, if the president wants to let our unwillingness to raise taxes get in the way, then we're not going to be able to set differences aside and focus on what we agree on. and my takeaway was that. >> i thought that we had a very frank and candid exchange of ideas. and frankly, i think it was productive. we have a spending problem. we have to attack the spending. and the president understands, yeah, we've got some long-term spending that we need to deal with, but he's going to hold hostage the fact that he wants to raise taxes on the american people again. >> last night, the president addressed organizing for action, the group run by many of his former top operatives to help advance the president's agenda. the president downplayed his new efforts to work with members on the hill. >> over the last several weeks, the press here in washington's been reporting about obama's charm offensive. well, you know, the truth of the matter is, all i've been doing is just calling up folks and trying to

of entitlement in exchange for new taxes. despite reports the meetings are just for show. party leaders are optimistic. >> they were inspiring optimistic realistic and called for unit and invited any thoughts we had before going forward. >> it was a candid exchange with a number of our members asking questions of the president. as you can image talked about all different issues confronting us with considerable proportion of time transcended issue of time that is our deficit and debt. >> our nation's debt $16 trillion. >> it is time now to brew on this. here's what we would like you to brew on today. a recent report found that more companies are turning to tracking devices to monitor employee's habits to find out how they are interacting with co-workers. bank of america did this when team members talked to each other often. one ceo persworker said they co be recorded by watching movements>> or reading e-mails. >> companies putting sensors on employees to track their every move? is this just fine or is it over the line? send your comments over to us. you can tweet them to us at fox friend
i'm listening but we've got to begin this talk by raising taxes. and then they got into some policy. >>alisyn: let's hear more about exactly what was said in these meetings. >> one of my favorite moments was when one of my colleagues said mr. president, it is not all that helpful to have you publicly questioning our motives, publicly accusing us of wanting to eviscerate medicaid, for example, simply because we want to call for reform or block grants. >> and his answer was? >> i don't speak nearly as badly about you as some of you do about me. >> who asked that? >> it was jon [inaudible] i thought he did a great job in answering the question. he was deferential in the way he did it. the point needed to be make. the president's response was unsatisfactory. it overlooked the fact that most of the time we criticize him but we generally don't question his motives. we don't question whether or not he generally cares about the american people. that is a problem. that is a difference. >>steve: you can tell the vicious attacks over the last couple of years really hurt. okay, he's up here now
proposals, both very different on things like tax hikes and entitlement spending and neither likely to get enough support to make it to the president's desk in its current form. house speaker john boehner says he's at work toward balancing the budget going forward, but that's that washington's spending problems have to be addressed. >> when you get down to the bottom line, the president believes that we have to have more taxes from the american people and we're not going to get very far. if the president doesn't believe that the goal ought to be the balance of the budget over the next ten years, i'm not sure we'll get very far. >> peter doocy with the news in washington for us tonight. do lawmakers sound hopeful that the government shoulddown can be avoided? >> harris, none of the lawmakers we heard from today actually threatened to shut down the government at the end of the march and the focus seems to have shifted past the upcoming deadline to extend that short-term budget resolution and on to a more grand bargain, but speaker boehner says he doesn't know if democrats and republicans can
conversations] imac part of the debate included comments from republican senator ted cruz the tax base and senator frank stein -- feinstein. >> that they may pose a question to the leader in response to senator cornyn, you mention there's someone under pages of the bill that specify particular firearms that if this bill were passed, congress would have deemed prohibitive. it seems to me that although she began as a foundational document with the constitution. and the second amendment in the bill of rights provides the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. the term, the right of the people, when the framers included in the bill of rights, the same phrases found in the first amendment to the right of the people to assemble is also found in the fourth amendment to be free from at least the bull searches and seizures. the question i pose is witchy teammate consistent with the bill of rights for congress to engage in the same in ever we are contemplating doing that the second amendment in the third or fourth amendment. would she consider constitutional for congre
